Grilled Curry-Ginger Lamb Chops

Prep time 12 mins
Cook time 14 mins
Other time 3 hrs
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 2 chops)
Curry and ginger are two spices that always work with lamb. Here, the lamb is marinated in a pastelike mixture made with those spices and apricot preserves. We recommend grilling over medium heat for this recipe so that the sweet apricot mixture doesn't burn.


  • 1/3 cup apricot preserves
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 3 tablespoons grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 (4-ounce) lamb loin chops, trimmed
  • Cooking spray
  • Cilantro sprigs (optional)
